FILM STUDIES 402

This paper will ask you to select any film of your choice that was released between 1895–1960.

Welcome

Historical Research Final Paper – This paper will ask you to select any film of your
choice that was released between 1895–1960 and construct an argument for its
significance to film history. You will conduct research on its production,
distribution, exhibition, and/or reception, which will require you to use both
primary and secondary sources. Based on this research, you will situate your film
within one of the four broad categories of historical inquiry that we will discuss this
semester: aesthetic, industrial, technological, or sociopolitical. Finally, you will
construct an argument that illustrates how your chosen film is historically
important within the category you’ve chosen.
